Ontario Training More French-Language Teachers

Additional teacher education spaces providing students with greater access to French-language education

As part of the Ontario government’s plan to train more French teachers, the province is funding an additional 110 French-language teacher education spaces for the 2023-24 academic year. The new spaces at the University of Ottawa and the Toronto-based Université de l’Ontario français will help address teacher shortages for schools in Toronto and Eastern-Ontario.

This investment enhances Ontario’s four-year French Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy launched in June 2021. The multi-pronged strategy will help recruit, train and retain French-language and French as a Second Language teachers in both the French-language and English-language school systems.
